Jillian’s Spinning: The Spinner’s Book of Fleece Giveaway!

Woo-hoo a spinning giveaway! Not just any spinning giveaway either – friend, breed enthusiast and expert spinner, Beth Smith has been working on this book for years and it’s finally here!

Beth's bouncing baby book!

This book picks up right where Deb Robson’s Fleece and Fiber Sourcebook left off. It answers the question, sheep breed by sheep breed, “how do I work with it?” This book covers choosing, washing, prepping and spinning fleece. It’s thorough and pretty amazing, just look:

It's gorgeous!
It’s gorgeous! Also sheep!

Storey Publishing has donated a copy of this beautiful book for a giveaway.

Want to explore some of the breeds Beth Smith discusses in The Spinner’s Book of Fleece? Enter Alison from The Spinning Loft. She built a raw fleece sampler around Beth and her book, The Beth Smith Sampler.

Here’s her description:  This sampler pack is a fantastic companion. Containing 2 oz. each of 15 breeds that Beth identifies and/or discusses in the book, this is a great way to get a taste for some of Beth’s favorite fibers.  Contents of the sampler vary based on stock, but each sample is found in the book.

How many people are so fiber obsessive they have a fleece sampler named after them? Alison has donated one sampler for our giveaway.

    You were absolutely right when you said this is “not just any spinning giveaway” – that’s a fabulous prize package! What a great way to learn more about fleece from various breeds, both in theory and practice!

    I love the idea of having 15 breeds of fiber right there on hand to mess around with as I am reading the book! Chances are, I haven’t worked with many of them, though I love breed specific spinning challenges.

    Wow! What an awesome giveaway. I’m looking to get into spinning, so this would be super helpful!

    Whilst I would love to win this, I’m in the UK and guess that the giveaway is US only? Still, this is the second time that I have come across this book in two days, and it has rave reviews. I think that I might add this to my Christmas list.

    I am returning to spinning after a year long hiatus. I have a new wheel to renovate; and my old (now repaired) wheel, plus a little fluff on the spindle. I can’t wait to get going again.

    This kit is wonderful! Like a ‘box of chocolate.’ The book & sampler pack gives the spinner a tasting of lovely fiber. Just like a tasting party it looks like it shows you how to best enjoy it.
